Acne is the most common skin condition and it affects millions of people. Dr. Jeanine Downie is among those who battled acne. Then, she found treatment that worked. Understanding the importance of treating acne and the effects the condition can have on patients’ self-esteem, the nationally prominent dermatologist offers several treatments for adult acne at her dermatological practice in Montclair, Image Dermatology. Dr. Downie and her team proudly serve patients in Glen Ridge and beyond.

Empathizing with patients who suffer from acne

Acne is a difficult condition to treat because it has several underlying causes. Some people suffer from acne due to genetics, whereas others face external factors. Although there is no “cure” for acne, Dr. Downie and her team can help patients manage the condition. Skin care regimens can be tailored to help patients attain healthier and more attractive skin.

Finding relief in chemical peel treatment

There are several types of acne from mild to severe. Acne can include whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, or nodules. Chemical peels are one of several treatments Dr. Downie and her team offer to patients battling acne. The right chemical peel can reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars. Adults suffering from acne can count on a treatment that lasts minutes. The type of peel and chemical used will determine the recovery period. Some chemical peels require no downtime, whereas with others, there is minimal downtime from work or other activities.

Tailoring treatments to the individual needs of patients

Chemical peels are safe and effective treatments for acne. They can be used to treat many conditions including skin discoloration and sun-damaged skin as well as lines and wrinkles. The results of treatment often include a rejuvenated appearance, a more youthful aesthetic, and renewed confidence.

Dr. Downie will typically recommend six or more chemical peels to achieve optimal results; however, it depends on the type of treatment. Light and medium chemical peels may be performed a few times a month until desired results are achieved. After the chemical solution is applied to the skin, it will naturally slough off, revealing fresh skin. Patients can sit back and relax during treatment while the Image Dermatology team pampers their skin.

Helping patients achieve their goals

Dr. Downie knows firsthand that chemical peels deliver beautiful results. She performs a chemical peel on herself once a month. If you would like to talk with a board certified dermatologist who understands the desire to have healthy and attractive skin, look no further than Image Dermatology.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
